Never mind. I was wrong.

It clashes with the ICPC Preparatory Series contest on Codechef. :(

I am really interested why all in top 10 are reds except semiexp whose color is green?Is it a bug?

    Actually his color is #92D050. If you reach 3200, you can choose your own color (tourist and Petr haven't decided their colors though).

I hate FFT :( the modulo is friendly though

Anyway, nice problems!

The best thing about AtCoder is trying to read the Japanese editorial using Google Translate.

Edit: My bad, I see the English version now.

    There's English editorial below Japanese editorial.

      It would be much better to provide editorials in English and Japanese in separate file. I don't like seeing Japanese editorial at the top. Can something be done in this regards? Anyways, Thanks for great contests and well explained editorials.

Can someone explain the solution for D better? I'm lost at the Inclusion-Exclusion part (where did the sum come from)

Can someone please explain the editorial of D in a different way? I'm having some difficulty understanding it. How is that formula derived? And how to find M(k) in O(n^2) using DP?

Sorry for necroposting, but how to solve D in time?

    I think all you do is: notice that the only part of the editorial that needs O(N2) time is computing the Mk. You can compute all Mk for a single path of length l by straightforward combinatorics / dp.

    Let Pl(x) be the polynomial where the coefficient of xk is the number of matchings of size k on a path of size l. Notice that in the graph, all paths are gonna be length l or l + 1 for some l (). To find the overall Mk, this is equivalent to a convolution so you can just compute Pl(x) and Pl + 1(x) for the appropriate l and then raise them to the correct power and multiply. This can all be done by FFT in ,

      How do we compute Pl(x) in time?

        Say you have a path of length l. You want to pick k of the edges so that you don't pick any two adjacent edges. This is just a binomial coefficient, something like or something.
